Occupational credentialing is promoted across the military Services to enhance recruitment, professional development, retention, and transition to the civilian workforce. Through the military Services’ Credentialing Opportunities On-Line (COOL) programs, military occupations have been mapped to over 1,000 civilian certifications and Services will pay for certifications for Service members. In FY 16, the Services paid for over 45,000 certifications and licenses. Learn about the COOL programs, including methods of matching military occupations to civilian certifications, credential payment policies, and how to facilitate credentialing of Service members.
After attending the on-demand webinar, attendees will be able to:
- Identify the types of military occupations to which credentialing applies
- Identify military and other government programs that have been developed to promote credentialing of Service members
- Identify strategies to increase communication between the military and the certification industry that will result in lessening the barriers to an appropriate certification
- Navigate the COOL websites, and apply strategies to have a strategic conversation in your organization about starting a new certification
